The new Fauchon éclair, named for Thierry Mugler‘s Angel, offers an exquisite union between two senses: smell and taste. At its center, the crunchy cake contains a bitter chocolate and almond praline, which contrasts with the Madagascar vanilla cream, accented by a touch of lemon and caramel.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4


I was invited to the launch of the Galaxy Note 4, an event done for bloggers at Junkyard in Mar Mkhael.

Once again, Samsung chose one of the most hype places in Lebanon and gave us the opportunity to see and manipulate the Galaxy Note 4 before anyone else.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 embraces Samsung’s heritage of an unrivaled Galaxy mobile experience. Its extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second. And due to its large screen, the refined Multi Window feature is able to maximize the user’s experience providing them with the key to easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 also sports an advanced camera system that is able to reproduce brighter and clearer images. The device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabilizer that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with f1.9 offers a default 90-degree shooting angle and up to 120-degree wide-angle so users can take the best group shots with friends.

The Galaxy Note 4‘s wide selection of enhanced essential features enable users to get even more from their mobile device. With the Fast Charging feature and Ultra Power Saving Mode, the Galaxy Note 4 charges faster and ensures that users don’t run out of power when they need it most. The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device.

 

Making everyday tasks much faster and easier, the Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen has been specifically evolved to serve as the primary tool that users go to for common, everyday mobile device use. This new S Pen offers a much more authentic pen experience, with a more natural brush effect that perfectly emulates writing on paper with a fountain or calligraphy pen. The S Pen also introduces a more user-friendly Air Command functionality along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select that allows users to create and collect content with ease. A new Smart Select feature enables users to easily piece together content from different origins, and share it with ease.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 also provides users with a choice of multiple, seamless note-taking methods integrated with Samsung’s S Note application that allows everyday tasks to get done faster and more easily. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Snap Note feature allows users to take a picture of their notes on a paper or a classroom board, and then quickly and easily convert to an S Note. They can also further unleash their creativity by jotting down their thoughts quickly with Voice Memo.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 introduces a new sleek and stylish Galaxy design language. The device features a premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device display. The Galaxy Note 4’s 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience. A soft-textured back cover provides incredible comfort that makes it easy to control with one hand. The device not only looks beautiful, but also offers a superior grip and enhanced durability. The Galaxy Note 4 is available in “Charcoal Black,” “Frost White,” “Bronze Gold,” and “Blossom Pink” colors.

It was interesting to discover the new Galaxy Note 4, with charming people and enjoying tasty drinks and food!

Thank you Samsung for the lovely gathering 🙂

Posh and Chic Prints!


I got dressed in the morning without really thinking of my outfit ahead of time and I suddenly realized that I was mixing two different kind of prints unconsciously, which i rarely do!

I wore my new chic black with white dots skirt from Benetton, with a simple white top from Sinequanone and matched it with my black and silver pumps patterns from Nine West.

patterns 042

 

What I like about this skirt, is that it’s simple, chic and it has pockets!

The white top is simple and goes well with anything!

The black and silver patterns shoes are comfy for a day at the office, and are just what I need for this season.

And since it’s Pinktober, I started with my first pink nail polish. I used the Pink Mocha from Mollon Pro and added a little bit of pink sparkle on the ring finger, by using the Embrace from Orly.

 

Are you into patterns? Do you like Pockets?

I would love to share stories 🙂

Question 1: We know that you have a deep love for fashion, can you tell us more how it started and how you decided to have a fashion blog?

Hello 😀

We are twins that’s right, but each one had love for something: Anna always loved writing and the online community. And Maria was always good in drawing, sketching and designing. We noticed that year by year, we become a bit far from each other: we have different works, each one her own group… so we decided to create something that will bound us again: our choice was evident. We love fashion, we love photography and travel. We started our fashion blog 😀

We began the photo shoots and posts were coming up. We got amazing feedbacks that encouraged us more.  At the beginning, we wanted to share our personal style and inspirations. Post after post, we wanted to show that it is possible to stay fashionable while being on a small budget and also show that it is ok to wear your clothes over and over again – you just need to be creative and combine the right items and accessories.

Question 2: What is your favorite summer trend?

For this summer we choose crop tops and denim. We just adore those items:D

We are also in love with floral patterns and mixing prints procedure. We like the white and black neutrals and we are having fun with logo shirts 😉

 

Question 3: From where do you get your inspiration?

We draw inspiration from anything and everything around us: it can be people on the streets, movies, nature, art exhibitions, bloggers, TV shows and music…

 

Question 4: What is the one thing that you can’t leave the house without?

Anna: make up item: mascara

Other item: pen and a small notebook.

Maria: make up item: lipstick

Other item: necklace and a bar of chocolate 😛

Question 5: What are the colors that you feel more comfortable with?

Anna: I love nude light colors like pink and blue which are very trendy this year. Pastel tones. They show feminism and lot of simplicity, elegance and a chic spirit! I Love also the Leopard texture, it is really fun to play with such patterns and mix it with others.

Maria: on top of my list comes the WHITE color. I love the pastel colors as well.

5 Tips to Transition your Wardrobe from Winter to Summer!


 

The sun is up, the beach is calling, it’s nature’s way of telling you to get that coat back to where it belongs (the back…back… of the closet!) and get out all the fresh and comfy outfits.

tips 005

For me, summer is all about light textures and colors, here are some transitional tips that will help you through

1- Lighten up 

Add light colors to your wardrobe and softer textures.

Pastel  is the “it” shade of the season. The hue comes in different colors from pink, purple, green, coral and blue. Wearing the pretty pale shades head-to-toe is unmistakably feminine, plus it’s also refreshingly au courant.

If you’re not into these colors add more white to your wardrobe. No color is more fresh or crisp than white, so when you wear the hue from head to toe, it results in an exceptionally stylish, high-impact look. 

 

2- Color of the Year

Don’t forget about the Pantone color of the year: Radiant Orchid. This is another fun way to update your outfit. Wear the color as a shirt, or skirt  –> quick and easy way to bring your look into Summer. 

3- Patterns:

Summer is the perfect time to play with patterns. Florals are popping up in store windows everywhere. Each piece is going to add visual appeal to your outfit and ensure you are transitioning into the summer with a chic and dynamic wardrobe.

4- Accessories

Marella Necklace – IRO white T-shirt

The winter to summer transition is not just an opportunity to mix up your clothing, but also your accessories, make-up, even nail polish.

 Add a statement necklace or earrings to your outfits and keep everything else simple.

5- Beauty

floral 016

Go for a glowing highlighter on cheeks but keep your lips matte. And skip the heavy eyeliner, a neutral eye shadow and thick mascara will keep your look fresh.

Nail polish is another fun way to add a little Spring to your look. Again go for brights or pastels!

IXSIR Wine Tasting at La Cave De Joel Robuchon


I was invited to a wine tasting at La Cave De Joel Robuchon in Beirut Souks, and the famous wine was “IXSIR”.

ixsir0

IXSIR cultivates its wine grapes in several different zones, including Batroun in the North, Jezzine in the South, and the Bekaa Valley in the East.

IXSIR produces a wide spectrum of grape varieties, from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tempranillo, Caladoc, and Viognier, Muscat (grape and wine), Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Here’s a small brief on their products:

ALTITUDES IXSIR

ixir2
RED, 2009
Enrobed in black cherry, with dark red reflections, this wine unleashes fresh aromas that vary between red and black fruits, with a touch of oak. Its unique assemblage gives the wine a supple and delicate character where blackcurrant and blackberry merge.

ROSE, 2012
Recalling the region of Provence, this wine has a marble pink robe with peony reflections revealing an intense bouquet of gooseberry and vine leaves. With its suave, fruity, and crispy palate, it will arouse the admiration of anyone passionate about authentic rosé wines.

WHITE, 2012
Presenting an elegant swirl of golden glittering robe, this wine breathes a bouquet of floral aromas with hints of Muscat and notes of grapefruit. With its floral and fruity blend, coupled with a sharp and crispy palate, this balanced wine reveals nice mouth freshness.

 

IXSIR GRANDE RESERVE

ixir3

RED, 2009
Rich in minerals and saturated with Mediterranean character, this wine unleashes exuberant aromas of mature fruits and spices. Its concentrated taste enrobed in a fine texture gives it an attractive liveliness, while its rich and mellow yet always-complex palate lasts until the final touch of fruit.

WHITE, 2012
The eye is seduced by its pure golden hue. The nose is enticed by an explosion of white flowers, peach and citrus fruits. The palate is enthralled by a nice equilibrium between mellowness and liveliness that leaves a final, equally wooden taste, which gives the wine a highly distinctive character.

EL IXSIR

RED, 2009
EL is the supreme cuvée of IXSIR. Its roots are deeply anchored in the historic Lebanese mountains praised for producing some of the best wines throughout antiquity.

 

I tasted the white wine from the Altitudes range and it was fresh, with a fruity taste. Perfect for summer!

Which is your favorite?
